Ed's right. Or if you have a washer for a garden hose laying around, you can put that on before screwing it in. I know they sell about 20 of these for a few dollars at the big box home improvement stores, it's handy to keep them around the house.

You don't mention where you live so it is hard to give specific advice. The best suggestion is that if it will be climate controlled, it should be built similar to any other climate controlled structure in your area. That means keeping damp, warm air away from cold surfaces, and building such that the walls can dry if moisture enters them. If you aren't ...

There is no rule in the UK preventing you from putting central heating and sockets on the same circuit (which may or may not be a ring). In my experiance a dedicated circuit for central heating is the exception not the rule. I'm not sure why you would want to make it into a ring, making it into a ring would mean adding an extra cable which would seem to ...

You won't be able to cover the bass with anything you put up, short of a wall. Depending on how loud it gets the vibrations of heavy bass are deep enough to where it can be heard inside through many walls. Best bet, ask them to lower the volume/bass or call the law enforcement to have them turn it down.

You definitely want to leave an expansion gap. However, you can fill the seam using a flexible material. Foam rod covered with a seam filler, is one common solution. There are also products sold that can simply be pushed into the seam. Check your local hardware/home improvement store, to see what's available in your area.

It's a vinyl fence. You could get a solid stain to match the color, but it won't be shiny. You could polyurethane it, but the sun degrades it after a couple of years, and you'll have to repeatedly refinish the fence.

"Is it paint or stain?"- neither, that fence is made of plastic. It is manufactured that color. "Can cedar be prepared to look like it?" - the grain uniformity and absence of knots and defects is unrealistic, natural cedar will have natural imperfections. If you choose your lumber carefully you can select pieces that look nicest to you. A high quality ...

That's a 2x4. It would look better on both sides of the fence if it were a 2x6 or 1x6, because then it would fully cover the posts. Nail them down from the top, into the 4x4 post.
